From Hamburg to Biarritz: United we stand!

Call for direct actions on July 6th and 7th in solidarity with all
affected by repression.

It’s been two years since the rallies, the pillars of smoke, the smashed
glass and the sirens of G20 in Hamburg. Despite the massive police
violence, our memories of liberating moments and moments of tangible
hope, expressed by the rage of tens of thousands, prevails.

Unite against repression

The massive repression did not only find expression in the police
violence during the summit but continues in the form of surveillance,
manhunts, defamation, fines and imprisonment of many our friends.

Uneffable detention conditions and a political judiciary, right away
starting to impose absurd prison sentences, are the brutal response for
a failed summit. The escalation and the violation of principles of civil
liberties were apparent.

In December 2018, the “Elbchaussee trials” started. Four young people
from Offenbach and Loic S., the poet from France who is still in
investigative custody, are supposed to suffer for a series of destroyed
cars and windows on the rim of a demonstration in Altona. On top of
that, our solidarity is called “detrimental to disciplining” and used as
a reason to close the trials to the public.

There is ongoing and pending trials against our movement not only
because of the Elbchaussee, but also because of the barricade party in
the Schanze, the harbour rally and the bludgeon orgy at Rondenbarg. Our
solidarity still needs to be seen and heard.

Unite to resist

All forms of resistance in Hamburg were and stay legitimate in light of
the continuous global crisis of the capitalist machinery. We will not be
intimidated by future authoritarian laws and a violent swing to the
right, either. Now more than ever we need to fight back against
economical oppression, the ecological disaster, racist and anti-feminist

This year, Macron’s France is presiding the G7. In a climate of growing
social tensions and the respective repression, the summit in Biarritz in
August will lead to massive protests as well. Let us build a
cross-border solidarity! Let us continue the fight for a solidary
society and against the summits of the rulers!

Solidarity is our strength! From Hamburg to Biarritz: United We Stand!


Summit of resistance – Summit of repression – Solidarity is our weapon

The G20 is over, but the work is not and there is no let up.

More than 100,000 people from all different backgrounds took part and made their way to Hamburg to protest against the G20 summit. Throughout the preparation against the G20 we faced constant repression; Camps were prohibited, demonstrations banned, houses and flats raided. It came to the point that people were approached and given verbal warnings, taken into custody or even received travel restrictions. Not only before but throughout the days of protest there were unprecedented levels of repression, uncountable numbers of protesters injured by the cops, hundreds taken into custody or arrested. 36 from which are still imprisoned, most of whom travelled from other countries to take part in the protests.

Those imprisoned comrades who took to the streets with us to fight against the G20 and it’s ridiculous and inhuman policies are now in need of our support. We’re not just thinking about here and now we still await repression in the coming weeks and months and those who might be affected. Our solidarity and resistance must be diverse. We will of course need a substantial amount of money not only for the lawsuits, but also for the campaigns publicity. The support from individuals is encouraged but it’s is also important that we fight against the repression collectively! Our goal is a international far-reaching campaign in which many people can contribute.

Despite all the attempts from the media and security forces before, during and after the summit they didn’t manage to split us, we still stand together and will continue to do so together with our imprisoned comrades! The summit is over but our fight for a better world without war, exploitation, oppression and prisons goes on!
United we Stand!
